Toyota recall millions of cars over greasy window glitch

10 October 2012

Toyota-Logo_4 If you’re a Toyota driver, you need to sit up and pay attention RIGHT NOW. If you’re having this read to you as you drive your Toyota, you need to pull over RIGHT NOW – you could be behind the wheel of a DEATH TRAP.

Toyota are recalling a whopping 7.4 million of their cars, and it’s all because of a faulty electric window switch. 138,000 of the cars are in the UK – could YOU be sitting behind the wheel of one of them?

The Japanese car giants have revealed that more than a dozen models produced between 2005 and 2010 were affected by a faulty power-window switch. Grease had not been applied evenly during production, causing a fire risk.

In the UK, certain RAV4, Auris, Yaris and Corolla models built between September 2006 and December 2008 are said to be affected and owners will be contacted by Toyota in the next six weeks. Don’t panic though, as no crashes or injuries have been reported in connection with the problem.
